Paranomia - Le requiem pour les refrigerateures solitaires (20k102) 2004
the release title (in english 'requiem for lonely refrigerators') says it already. technoid ambient-industrial-noise that is colder than the arctic. Paramomia, (a sideproject by estonian producer talvel) is a word taken from a game called oddworld. it's a vanishing wilderness, plenty of trees, shrubs and dirt walkways are the norm there. don't miss this release.

Original and hypnotizing
Dark and cold tracks, yet very immersing with a haunting ambiance emanating from the continuum of the album.
On a low level the synthesis is interesting and complex, sometimes unidentifiable, often distorted and brutalized repeated samples backed up by some bassish drone.
The mixing is very original and rough, I don't think it is careless, but some tracks obviously wonn't work on most speakers. i guess headphones are recommended.
It has no reason of hurting your speakers anymore than a square wave if you use your volume knob.
Still, use headphones !!

If you value your speakers...
...don't play this. All other critical concerns aside, the whole mess is recorded either near or over the db limit and clips terribly. Awful. I wonder if this was intentional on the artist's part? If so, this just isn't even going to begin to be satisfying.
